    Mac's OS' prior to X/10 is very curious. It gives off the impression of something substantial but slightly beneath the surface you find it's a complete nothing burger, heavily dependent on third party software to basically do anything, and often it makes a big deal about its ability to do rudimentary things like play a video. It almost feels like some sort of achievement... I feel like Windows was probably technically better in many ways, but somehow there's still an allure and slight mystique about doing exactly the same things in Mac OS as you would in Windows. It's somehow more 'comfortable' perhaps...

    that Ge beige MT brings back so many meories of studying music through my first year at music college and that machine coming home with me as it was no longer wanted. That little beauty had a good few years use and was running a Protools TDM Mix system using all 3 cards, scsi to internal drive bay, etc. I have a very fond love for this machine. loved the design, the feel, the ease of servicing, etc. The AV board was an optional board as it's called a "personality board" there were different versions of this board, you have the same board I had as this was an Audio / Video in / out board for editing use. The latches do get a bit stiff, but considering the design of the case, not surprising. the upper floppy and any of the plates to the front can be a little fragile, be careful with them please. the floppy is the worst to break a tab, so will be loose, though there is a way of fixing that. This machine differed from the PM9600 and yes, the super had 5 PCI slots, but the board wasn't so reliable. nice design, but questionable I/O. Now then, the two missing pins are normal for a DB15 mac display cable as they were non data / power for that particular display, so were removed on manufacture. hope that fixes things.

    So much nostalgia...I used to use this beige machine at school running 10.4. According to IT was a pain to upgrade to 10.4 but ran it perfectly. The school didn’t like the Mac Lab and was in the process of getting rid of it for an all PC lab (there was already 2 all PC labs and there were 2 Mac labs, Beige Power PC G3 lab and the Turquoise Power Macintosh G3 lab). Not sure if it happened after I left the school. I miss these machines.

    pin 3 is composite sync, not used on that type of monitor (it uses the other hsync and vsync on pins 12 and 15), pin 8 is never connected on any mac DB15 monitor connector,, the IIgs used the same physical connector, but a slightly different pinout that had 12V DC on pin 8, so they may have completely removed the pin to prevent any issues if the monitor was connected to a IIgs

    This was my favorite Mac I ever owned, just because there was so much that could be done with it. Mine started life with a 266 MHz G3, Rev A logic board, 384 MB RAM, SCSI zip 100, 6GB hard drive, dead SCSI CD drive, and the sound-only personality card. When I was done with it, I had upgraded the processor to a G3 500 out of a Blue and White (which worked, amazingly enough), the Rev C motherboard, the A/V personality card, SuperDrive DVD-R, Zip 250, 2x120 hard drives, a Sonnet USB2/FW400/ATA133 card, a Radeon 9000 video card, a RTL8139 ethernet card for 100mbps networking, and I upgraded the PSU to a 450 watt PC unit (there’s a jumper on the logic board that allows for PC PSUs). I had Mac OS 9.2 for the video player and OS X 10.3.9 for everything else. The caveat with getting the absolute most out of that processor upgrade was changing the bus speed and processor multiplier (which is a block of jumpers on the logic board). The Blue and White and the Yikes machines also had a similar set of jumpers; AGP G4s migrated this to the processor cards. Also, I believe the SCSI was worthless for OS X on this computer (at least the Zip drive didn’t function in 10.3.9 for me). XPostFacto could also be used to run 10.4 on this machine, but I never tested this out.

I had to find a third-party seller with one, which took a lot more effort than I expected. I eventually got a Aurora Fuse video capture card and a 9.1GB 10,000 RPM Seagate Cheetah hard drive. I paid almost $1000 for the drive. Oh, the good ol' days. All the cool stuff I made with that machine.

    This was the professional version to the educational G3 All-in-One models. Had planned to add one to my collection but it is hard to find the required USB PCI card and Firewire 400 PCI card with the needed software drivers. In addition, these models do not support the apple TV/FM radio card. So, I selected the 5500 All-in-One with its built-in 15 inch Sony CRT, added from my older 5400 All-in-One a G3 upgrade card, the apple video card, and the apple TV/FM radio card running OS 9.2.

    My high school videography class had 2 of these with like 80 gigs worth of hard drives and 384 megs of RAM each. All rendering had to be done on nights or weekends. Some larger projects had to wait until long breaks. Teacher would go in every few days to make sure FinalCut hadn’t crashed. I think they were like $15,000 each

    Gosh doesn't have to be a deity. So I will continue saying what I say.
